Formerly entered as NO33SE 582.

For Dundee, Nethergate, St Mary's Church (NO 40186 30136), see NO43SW 359.

NO 3798 3077 (centre) A record was compiled in September 2002 of groups of architectural stone fragments, including a rose window, at various locations in Balgay Park. Most, if not all the fragments appear to have come originally from St Mary's Church (NO43SW 359) in the Nethergate and would have arrived in the park following the restoration of the church in the 1870s. Several of the loose stones, originally noted by Mrs E Bennett, have been moved by the Council Parks Department to a secure location.

The stones were noted at 12 locations within the park. A detailed drawn record of the rose window was made. Three possible quarries were also noted. These may have provided stones for paths in the park.

Archive to be deposited in the NMRS.
